The American Psychological Association notes that an ongoing longitudinal study found that none of the lesbian mothers had abused their children.”(APA n.d. )It states that the thoughts and fears of higher risk of sexual abuse by gay parents are not supported by research.

Gay marriage is a controversial topic in the world, 94 out o 196 countries have signed a General Assembly declaration of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender rights or sponsored the Humans Rights Council 2011 resolution on LGBT rights however, only 18 countries have approved the same-sex marriages, this is extremely preoccupying because this shows how terribly unequal we are.

The prevention of transmitting STDs has proven to be a controversial subject in the United States. The argument comes not from the objective of eliminating STDs, which everyone shares, but the differing strategies for arriving at that goal. The theory is that even mentioning condoms, much less admitting that they dramatically reduce the possibility of HIV infection, sends a “mixed message” about the worth and value of total abstinence up until marriage. Groups such as the National Abstinence Education Association (NAEA) state that avoiding sexual activity before marriage is the only surefire or secure method of protecting oneself from STDs. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, the average age for Americans to lose their virginities is around 17 for both men and women.
This is an extremely scary statistic considering that fiftyeight percent of children in America are living in a single parent family. This is a chilling percentage because it shows how little faith is put into a relationship before actually deciding to have children. Unfortunately not all single-parents take the time to perform the vital tasks needed to raise their children.

To Ginsberg, the American Dream was infeasible for most in his predicament owing to discrimination based on sexual identity. Even today, as Rich Bellis points out in his article, "Only 19 states and Washington, D.C., have passed laws preventing LGBT Americans from being discriminated against by employers. Three others protect employees on the basis of sexual orientation but not gender identity" (Bellis). Although this shows only a fraction of America's minorities, it is still a fair indicator that the American Dream is unachievable to certain groups in America all because their differences cause them to have unequal opportunities for success. This is outrageous, especially when the American Dream means equal opportunity as mentioned in a prior
